Ready to Draw More People than I Can

Posted Feb 2020

I recommend Estimating 10 Faces per Hour. But I try to accommodate my Clients when they ask me to draw Faster.

Obviously, I can't do what I can't do. But there are ways to get more people drawn (if they all sit for their Caricatures very quickly ~ I can't very well Rush the Guests). I can approach the Artwork very simply. I can just draw Lines without Shading. I can skip the Color. And I feel that the way to keep them Simple is to just draw what I see ~ with not much in the way of Artist's Interpretation.

Still, the Artwork takes on a Quality of its own. Not the Whole Symphony, but a Simple Beauty in its Simplicity. Kind of Classy.

Updated Apps

Posted Oct 2019

Oh No! It happened! I finally did All the Updates on my IPad. And I LOST ALL MY CUSTOM-MADE COLOR PALLETTES IN PROCREATE! Gone. I had spent Hundreds of Hours creating them. (At least my Brushes and Templates are still here.)

Before attempting to redo my pallettes, I decided to give the Default Pallettes a try. They look pretty. The ones that automatically come with the new version of Procreate.

Aghk. NO Black. NO White. NO Dark Colors. And the Pallettes make no sense for a real Artist. No focus on the attributes of the Color Wheel. You just pick something that looks nice. Here's what I made. A Caricature based on the drawing that I did last night. I don't know if I'm going to redo my Procreate Pallettes or try a new app that my friend told me about recently.

At least the Smudge Tool at the Updated Procreate is working better than ever:

John Krasinsky

Posted Oct 2019

What to do tonight? What to do? I'm feeling pulled to check out what's going on with my IPad, and I'm also feeling pulled to simply draw some Caricatures simply. And also how about some more complicated Caricatures.

This is what I ened up with. A simply Caricature of John Krasinsky (Actor from the tv show called The Office). Twice. Based on a photo that was posted online. The 'sloppier'one, more freely drawn After drawing the first one, is obviously better.

Keeping the Cloud Light

Posted Oct 2019

Hey Hey You You get off of my Cloud ~ Hey Hey You You get off of my Cloud ~ Well, the song has been going through my mind, but this is actually a different attitude than I have. I just feel like I have to clear some stuff off my Desktop because my Cloud is getting too full. I probably have about 10,000 photos here that I haven't posted yet.

Tonight I went through a few of the Caricatures that I drew at a Wedding. Good times ~
